Would Hue Jackson still be a Raiders employee today if he had taken Al Davis supposed job offer?
It’s a much anticipated game Sunday between the Cincinnati Bengals and Oakland Raiders. It’s the first time for Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer to face his former team, and it’s the same for Cincinnati assistant coach Hue Jackson vs. the Raiders. Oakland has lost all three of its East Coast time zone games. The Raiders are just 5-25 in East Coast games since 2003.
It’s the first game back in Cincinnati for Carson Palmer. On the other side, former Raiders head coach Hue Jackson is now a special teams and defensive backs assistant coach and this reunion only adds to the storyline.
With the Oakland Raiders struggling and off to a 3-6 start, one of the more popular and productive veterans is defensive back Michael Huff, who has moved from safety to cornerback this season.
The Oakland Raiders have long been impulsive with coaches: when in doubt, fire away. Owner Al Davis is gone, but some say new GM Reggie McKenzie’s quick-trigger ousting of head coach Hue Jackson feels familiar.
New Oakland Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie on Tuesday continued the football team’s tradition of firing its head coaches by dismissing Hue Jackson after Jackson had held the job for only one year.
After wrapping up a disappointing 8-8 season with a 38-26 loss to San Diego that cost them the AFC West title, the Raiders go into an offseason that promises plenty of change.
Philip Rivers threw three touchdown passes and Richard Goodman returned a kickoff 105 yards for another score as the San Diego Chargers ended Oakland’s playoff hopes by beating the Raiders 38-26 on Sunday.
Nearly all NFL coaches and players have some sort of ritual they go through before games. Hue Jackson treats himself to a pedicure and manicure.
The Raiders are on a record-setting penalty pace and are allowing the most yards per carry in franchise history.
